Now, if you have seen the movie JFK, then you know of Clay Shaw. Why is Clay Shaw significant? Clay Shaw is significant because of his position within the New Orleans community. He wasn’t just anyone. He was Mr. Everyone. Anyone who was anyone in New Orleans or the business world in general knew Clay Shaw. I have sketched out some diagrams indicating why we owe Jim Garrison a big, big debt.
Yes, I know, these are only associations. Associations don’t produce guilt, but they do serve a purpose. They give us a road map in the way that a map of the cities of the United States gives you a framework upon which you can get from one city to the next.
A map also helps to dispel the myth of randomness, a favorite theory and explanation for the JFK Assassination by Warrenatti. According to the Warrenatti, everything just happened by chance. Nobody knew anybody.
Well, apparently Clay Shaw knew a lot of people. That doesn’t mean Clay Shaw did it; but it might mean that the man who planned the JFK Assassination knew all these people, including Clay Shaw, and used them as tools or patsies.
The federal government and the CIA had and still has a right to be scared of Big Jim. He had exposed not just a vital piece of the puzzle in the JFK assassination puzzle but also a key link between the cities of Dallas and New Orleans.
Clay Shaw was also a member of an organization called CMC, Centro Mondiale Commerciale. I will enclose a short bio of some of the members. Now, there is nothing illegal about people getting together, but these aren’t just anyone. Many of these members have been linked to CIA and OSS.
None of this of course proves that Clay Shaw materially participated in the JFK Assassination. What it does prove is that Clay Shaw was thought of highly – very highly.
Indeed Clay Shaw was not just a dandy hanging out in the French Quarter. He was an extremely intelligent guy who had marvelous organizational skills which he honed in New York City and Europe. In New York City he worked for the Lee Keedick Agency which is a lecture agency. Clay Shaw’s job was to organize lectures for the elite and important. It’s fair to say that if someone was important Clay Shaw had met him. In Europe he worked directly under General Charles Thrasher in England and France during WWII.

I don’t believe that Clay Shaw knowingly participated in the assassination of JFK. I think he was used like so many others were used. Did he know David Ferrie and Lee Oswald? Yes, I think he did. Was he a member of the CIA? If you collaborate with the CIA on a regular basis, I think it’s fair to say that you are CIA.
Clay Shaw’s New Orleans Overview from 35,000 Feet
Sometimes it’s dizzying to read about all the connections between people in New Orleans. Here is one overview from 35,000 feet.
The connection between NASA-Chrysler-Boeing should not be understated. Andrew Jackson Higgins built Higgins Industries. Originally from Nebraska, he migrated to the South where he became a boat-maker extraordinaré. It’s fair to say that Higgins won the war for the United States in both Pacific and European theaters. His companies at one time employed 80,000 people. He knew FDR and Ike, and they knew him. He was connected and important to the Defense Industry. Higgins died in 1952.
